Cable tv periodically fuzzy

Preface: I have called the cable company and they are sending a tech next week, but I'm looking for solutions before then. Watching fuzzy college football is less than desirable.

For the past week, my cable TV has gotten fuzzy for extended periods of time, usually starting between 2PM and 4PM and ending between 6PM and 8PM. My internet connection (also through the cable company) goes out as well.

Channels 3-23 are only mildly fuzzy, but the interference makes channels above 23 or 24 unwatchable. There is no obvious trigger for this problem, and the start/end times aren't perfectly consistent. Any guesses? What do I tell the cable guy, especially if he shows up when this isn't happening?
